PHOTO DIARY: First Timer’s 2 Days in Cebu City

When you think of Cebu, what comes first in your mind? Me, LECHON. Because, hello. Food is Life. LOL. But, seriously, whenever I think of Cebu, I think of it that it’s not far from Manila but waaaay better than Manila. Gets?

It is my first time in Cebu and have had a very limited time to explore the city.I booked a Piso Fare ticket to Cebu back in March 2016 and it only cost me 500 pesos for a RT ticket already. Amazing, right? I don’t know why I just booked 3 days. I should have stayed longer!

Anyway, I have always wanted to go to Cebu because I think it has a lot to offer — from historical places, pristine beaches, and food (again, of course. LOL).

I won’t be saying much about the historical background of the places that we’ve been to nor tell you how delicious the food is… But, ito na lang tandaan niyo, I want to go back to Cebu again. πŸ™‚

Below is a PHOTO DIARY of my very short but sweet escape to Cebu last September 2016.

Henry’s Facade

Hotel lounge.
Another lounge beside the front desk counter.
Stairs to the museum. YES! They have a museum on the 2nd floor. πŸ™‚

 

My favorite part of the hotel. Dining area! πŸ™‚ not because of the food. Joke. Part yun. Haha! But also because of its one of a kind HUUUGE Alice-in-Wonderland-Feels Pop Art chairs and wall paintings.
Swimming pool at the back end of their hotel. A good place to relax. All by ourselves that day! πŸ™‚
Nope, it’s not just any kiddie pool. It starts from 3 feet to 5 feet (i think?) or 6 feet? Haha.
I don’t know what this is called but I think this is more of a Game Room.
Lounge inside the Game Room
